    two questions.

    Hi

    Concerning this sentence, I have two questions:


    The brand of the chairs was not specified in the tender invitation.


    What does the "specified" and "tender invitation" mean?


    Thanks a lot

    More context is needed.

    Re: two questions.

    Say I need to buy 1,000 chairs. I don't care about the brand, so I don't specify one (name a particular kind).

    I invite (ask) chair sellers to tender (make offers to supply the chairs, with details about the price they will charge and delivery dates) for their supply.

    Hope that helps.
